The purpose of the Festival
The Festival is organized as a homage to Johnny Raducanu, the illustrious Braila citizen, seeking to perpetuate his work and distinct artistic personality. His great love for the hometown, Braila, exceeded only by the love for music, his constant support offered to the young creators or jazz performers will be annually celebrated in this way also.
The Festival – contest is an yearly competitive event organised by Braila County Council, the Creation Center and aims at discovering and promoting new interpretive talents. On the entire festival’s duration there will take place jazz recitals, an occasion for the young competitors and audience to come together with well-known performers of jazz music, to meet musical producers and also a music and book fair, where they will participate in album releases.
